Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez has hit out over the British government’s two-week quarantine for all Brits returning from Spain, calling it “unjust.”
Sánchez said that most British tourists will be safer in most of Spain than being in the UK, and said talks are ongoing with the government.
In an interview wit Telecinco TV Network Sánchez said they are “talking with British authorities to try to get them to reconsider.”
He said that “64.5% of the new cases registered are in two territories” and n most of Spain coronavirus was “very much inferior to the numbers registered in the United Kingdom.”
Junior government minister Simon Clarke told BBC Breakfast that, “We respectfully disagree with the Spanish government’s position on this.
“We have seen a very sharp increase in cases in Spain, a 75% increase in cases reported between the middle of last week and the end of last week. That’s why we took the action that we have.”
